Lily Allen has launched a treasure hunt in London and Aberdeen to win tickets to her forthcoming show at the capital's O2 Shepherds Bush Empire.

The singer took to Twitter to announce plans to hide three pairs of golden backstage tickets in both cities for her one-off album launch show on April 28.

In a series of posts, she wrote, "I'm gonna hide 3 pairs of golden backstage Sheezus tickets in London and Aberdeen and tweet clues... First Pair... If you want to come to see Sheezus, you'll just have to follow these clues, I've hidden three tickets in London, the first set is under a pew. Row 3. To come hear me sing, along with a synth, check out the church by the lord on a plinth. Row 3. Don't be so sad, don't be so solemn, it's not really a plinth, it's more of a column. Row 3."

The show will be Allen's first headline performance in four years. Allen's new album, 'Sheezus', will be released the following week (May 5).

Tickets for Allen's Shepherd's Bush Empire went on sale this morning Friday (April 4). To check the availability of Lily Allen tickets and get all the latest listings, head to NME.COM/tickets.

Allen recently hit out at her label for the direction of her comeback campaign so far. She said: "What you have heard on the radio station so far, the contribution of my album is very much the more beige, saccharine elements to what I have made."

She continued: "The reason for that is because the people in control of the radio stations, the people that are in control of the record companies, are too scared to put themselves on the line in case someone gets offended. If I said to my record company I really want to go with this song, they would say, 'Sure, here is £5 for the video'."
